Always my favorite place for breakfast. Everything is fresh and homemade. Huge plates of pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, home fries. Oh, those home fries! Lunch hamburgers piled high with whatever you want! Fresh, crunchy French Fries. Used to ride our horses up and call ahead...More

The service here is wonderful and the environment exudes small town charm. You'll find ample portions at sensible prices. I enjoyed an enormous plate of savory biscuits and sausage gravy, home fries, and a bottomless coffee for less than ten bucks and our waitress (Kerry)...More

I've stopped in for lunch as well as dinner. I've never had a bad meal. Only negative I can give them is they only take cash.

This is the place where locals and tourist alike come to eat. Expect a little bit of wait, even in this rural area. The food is pretty, especially the chicken. Bring your appetite and enjoy.

Based on recommendations by locals we tried Alva's for dinner. Husband got the Broasted Chicken all you eat for $9.99. He received plenty - drumsticks as requested and they brought 5 which was more than plenty. However, they were thickly breaded so only a few...More

We read many good things about this restaurant, and I'm puzzled by all the good reviews. The mashed potatoes were definitely not real potatoes, and I'm quite sure the gravy was canned. The peas were either canned or cooked to death. I would describe the...More

Great breakfast. No need to order a stack of pancakes. One was more than we could finish. Excellent potatoes and biscuits. Great service. We'll worth any wait.

I believe it is Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. Then on Monday, Wednesday and Friday it is all you can eat fish. Not sure what is on Saturday. But it is best to call them to make sure. Trust me you won't be disappointed... More
